Reversed Preservation Properties for Series and Parallel Systems

Abstract

Recently Li and Yam (2005) studied which ageing properties for series and parallel systems are inherited for the components. In this paper we provide new results for the increasing convex and concave orders, the increasing mean residual life (IMRL), decreasing failure rate (DFR), the new worse than used in expectation (NWUE), the increasing failure rate in average (IFRA), the decreasing failure rate in average (DFRA), and the new better than used in the convex order (NBUC) ageing classes.
